The Barlow RC School

Ms C Wallace

The Barlow RC High School is a leading 11-16 Catholic High School situated in East Didsbury, Manchester.  Established in 1985, the school is a Catholic, co-educational, voluntary aided comprehensive that is part of the Salford diocesan family of schools.  The Barlow is a diverse and fully inclusive community and as such we welcome pupils of all faiths and none.  We are a high performing school, and this was recognised by Ofsted in June 2019 when The Barlow was judged to be at least ‘Good’ in all areas.  Our most recent diocesan Section 48 inspection rated the school as ‘Good’ with elements of ‘Outstanding’.
